Bulldog Dash 5K
I drove about 40 miles over to Iola, Texas this morning to run the Bulldog Dash 5K. Had a great time. Got to visit with Sara, who use to run with us years ago when she was a college student at Sam Houston. The course was flat and looped the small town. I think they had about 50 runners and there was no age group competition. I finished in 37:43. After I got back to Huntsville, I took a nap and then went to the Sam Houston State - Eastern Washington football game. Eastern Washington is ranked number 2 in the FCS and Sam Houston State is ranked number 4. Just as I got to the stadium for the 2 p.m. start, it heavy storm came through, with plenty of lightning. They delayed the start of the game until nearly 3:30. There was flash flooding on the street below the stadium and at least two cars got wiped out. I moved my truck to higher ground and waited until the game was getting ready to start. Sam won 49 to 34.
